View dismissal AJ Strauss c †Gilchrist b Johnson 17 49 32 2 0 53.12
11.1 gone! that was too close to cut to third man and Strauss went for it anyway and got a thick edge to Gilchrist, Strauss has been playing that shot repeatedly today and a nick was always on the cards 47/2
View dismissal MB Loye c †Gilchrist b Lee 9 21 17 0 1 52.94
4.4 and he's gone now! wide ball outside off stump, Loye would have been better of letting that go but he went hard at it and the slash resulted in a thick outside edge that flew straight to Gilchrist 14/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Clarke b Clark 35 44 31 2 1 112.90
15.4 short and wide outside off stump, Bell looked to continue batting aggressively and cut that hard, he couldn't keep it down and didn't find the gap either, Clarke didn't have to moveat point to take an easy catch 72/3
View dismissal EC Joyce c Johnson b Lee 11 31 25 2 0 44.00
19.2 it wasn't short enough to pull and the line was outside off stump, Joyce tried to force it through midwicket and ended up getting a top edge to Mitchell Johnson at mid-on who took a comfortable catch, a very rash shot and England are slipping as they have done in previous matches in this series 79/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Clark b Symonds 3 20 17 0 0 17.64
20.5 another one falls softly! Symonds tosses it up outside off stump, Collingwood steps down, he isn;t to the pitch of the ball but tries to drive anyway, the ball hits high on the bat and lobs tamely to Clark at mid-off 81/5
View dismissal A Flintoff* c Ponting b Johnson 16 33 28 1 0 57.14
27.6 and gone! fuller length delivery outside the off stump, fairly innocuous delivery. Flintoff drives away from his body and the ball goes straight to Pointing at wide first slip. Could have left it alone but Flintoff couldn't resist going for the drive and that's sums up England's performance 103/6
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple c †Gilchrist b Johnson 10 32 24 0 0 41.66
29.2 Johnson strikes again! two in two overs and England's slump continues. Perfect line and length to the right-hander - good length, pitched close to the off stump line and shaping in late. Dalrymple had to play at it and the edge goes straight to Gilchrist behind the stumps. 106/7
View dismissal PA Nixon c & b Hogg 4 29 19 0 0 21.05
34.3 Well as you wish Binoy! tossed up on the middle and off stump line, Nixon pushes forward to defend and the ball spoons up off the leading edge. Hogg shuffles across and makes no mistake. Done and dusted in 34.3 overs 110/10
View dismissal LE Plunkett c Clarke b Johnson 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
29.6 that's the end of that! Johnson once again drags it short and Plunkett plays the 'sitting duck act' to perfection, ball clips the shoulder of the bat and lobs up towards point. Clarke moves in quickly and makes no mistake. As simple as that 106/8
View dismissal CT Tremlett c White b Hogg 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
30.5 another one bites the dust and this time it's the googly that does the damage. Flat and on the middle and off stump line, turning away evers-so-slightly. Tremlett pushes forward to defend and the edge is produced. White at first slip swoops low down and make a hard catch look easy 107/9

View dismissal AC Gilchrist run out (Plunkett/†Nixon) 23 29 19 4 0 121.05
6.3 from Flintoff, driven straight back and Flintoff gets a touch on it. Gilchrist called for the single and kept running but Hayden was busy ball watching. Plunkett moved across to his left at mid-off and fired in the throw at the keeper's end. Nixon ran in and dragged the ball on to the stumps. Perfect mix-up. 32/1
